Google is rolling out message reactions in Allo’s version 14. Although we and lots of other people were expecting desktop client for Allo. Couple of times earlier, we have also received new leaks in the form of images regarding desktop couple of times earlier.
The message reactions in Google Allo works same as in FB Messenger. However, unlike Messenger in Google Allo you can only react to a message with a heart reaction. The number of likes are shown in a badge at the bottom of the message. The information is given by Head of Product – Google Allo, Google Duo & WebRTC Amit Fulay through a tweet.
Right now we did not have full changelog of the update. But still we know Google has introduced message reactions in Allo which is quite good.
